Hi
\015\012It sounds like when the battery doesn't have enough power to turn over the engine. Some of the probable reasons for your problems…. If it's low battery voltage the battery is unable to maintain enough current to engage and operate the starter. If it's a loose or poor battery terminal connection the connection may be weak and not capable of carrying the current load of the starter motor. If it's a faulty starter it could be engaging but the electric motor part is not functioning.
\015\012However if the lights go completely off when you try to crank the engine, it's probably a bad connection. If the lights severely dim when you try to crank the engine it's probably a bad battery or alternator that is unable to keep the battery charged. A battery is only a storage device. It stores electrical energy that is created by the alternator. If the alternator has failed, the battery does not get charged and won't be able to start an engine. The battery can also just be old and unable to hold a charge. If the lights don't dim much when you try to start the engine it might be that the starter just isn't engaging.
